    Looking To Do a $200 Gaming Rig

    Hey everyone I just wanted to check back in. Performance is still looking good. I even got my hands on a copy of The Witcher 3 and I can run that at low/medium 1080p locked to 30 FPS. That game is awesome by the way. I did have one question though. My overclock. I had to drop it from 4.3GHz to 4.1 because it just wasn't as stable as I thought. Right now I have it at 4.1GHz at 1.425v. Temps don't go above 62 according to CoreTemp. I've gotten 24 hours stable on Prime95. So my question: Are those temps ok for this APU? Is that voltage ok? Is 24 hours enough to claim stability now?
  2. Well, yeah, no one's arguing that. The OP set the rules that he wants new only though. I'm just following those rules I'm not gonna be that guy that tries to convince him otherwise.
  3. Depends. The GPU in the A6/A8 is definitely faster (see the Witcher 3 in the video below). The CPU is better though. So for CPU bound games the 200GE wins and for GPU bound the A6/A8 wins
  4. If you have to buy new, I just made a build myself very similar to this!

See my videos here: Here's another video that shows performance in many more games (this one is not mine): I would get the B450 motherboard over the A320 because on the A320 you can not overclock.

    probably correct yeah. I went with the MSI B450M Pro-M2 because it was cheaper by a few dollars. This was the final build I used. The changes include the power supply, motherboard, and SSD. Total came to $205 exact, no tax. Luckily my Dad let me get the parts that needed a mail in rebate, he floated me the money. The price of the processor has since gone up by a dollar and 6 cents: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU AMD - A6-9500 3.5 GHz Dual-Core Processor $46.11 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI - B450M PRO-M2 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $59.99 @ Newegg Memory Crucial - Ballistix Tactical 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $24.99 @ Amazon Memory Crucial - Ballistix Tactical 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $24.99 @ Amazon Storage Patriot - Burst 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $29.99 @ Newegg Business Power Supply Corsair - CX (2017) 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply $19.99 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $236.06 Mail-in rebates -$30.00 Total $206.06 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-03-01 04:04 EST-0500

    Also, those are the only games I care about running, which was also in my OP.

    I didn't not listen to anyone. No one gave me any alternatives with my requirements. I gave my requirements which was a strict $205 budget and no used parts. I wound up not being allowed to use any used parts despite the excellent arguments made here. And I have no way to save up unless I wait until next birthday (or maybe Hanukkah) because I have no income or allowance. So what other choice did I have?

    Yes it is. I'm at 4.3 GHz stable.

    Also @lee32uk @Eastman51 we are on Linus forums. That makes Linus this forums god. The forum god himself called this piracy as well. See his video Read the video description as well. Linus references that it is pirating and asks if Microsoft could sue them.

    @lee32uk @Eastman51 You guys realize @jerubedo is right, right? We actually just studied this very case in the criminal justice section of our social studies class: the use of Windows 10 without activation. We defined it as piracy and it was our goal to debate the ethicality of it. It wasn't even a question weather it was piracy or not. The teacher just said that it was. Plus he referenced an actual law firm and standardised dictionaries/books, and sections of legal code. Based on those oficial definitions and the sections and the EULA I'd say its without a doubt piracy.

    Here are the videos as promised. The FPS counter is in the top right for both. Captured with FRAPS. Running Windows 7 Ultimate. Here's Fortnite: Here's LoL: @fasauceome @suchamoneypit @DesolationGod @CharminUltraStrong @jerubedo @Herman Mcpootis @Turtle Rig I think these are pretty decent results no?

    Just to update everyone, I did go for my original build (minus the tower) and I got everything in the mail today. I assembled everything on a test bench and hooked it up to a monitor we had laying around downstairs along with a basic mouse and keyboard (although I really do want a new mouse, this one has a ball in it). Everything is working well so far. I'm pretty happy with the gaming performance in LoL and Fortnite is okay, playable. I'll post a performance video shortly as a followup to the followup.

    I really like that first build especially because of that freesync monitor. Plus 16GB RAM *thumbs up*

    Yeah he's like that with everything. He won't buy used hardware, electronics, cars, furniture, anything. There's always a reason. For furniture it's, "You never know whose ass sweat and semen has been on it." For cars it's, "You never know if it's been in a fender bender that went unreported or if it's been in the hands of some teen who constantly revs the engine or neglects maintenance." It's just always something.
